Aside from Ki Hong Lee, another Up-and-coming actor co-starring in The Maze Runner is British hunk Aml Ameen. He will be playing the role of Alby.
More about Aml’s Alby character from schmoop.com:
Alby is the de facto leader of the Glade gang. It is a role that has been thrust upon him, due to the recent demise of the previous leader, so he’s doing his best to not screw things up. His main motivation is to maintain the order that has been established by the previous leaders at all costs.
A sort of moral compass that the other boys look toward for guidance, Alby often has to do the hard thing rather than what’d be easier at the time.

Can he outbox Manny Pacquiao? Nah. But he can outbox the baddies in The Maze Runner.
Aside from The Maze Runner, Aml’s other big Hollywood break would be the 2013 Oprah-produced movie, The Butler. Here’s a shirtless Aml with Yaya da Costa. If Yaya sounds familiar to you, its because you’ve watched her on Tyra’s America’s Next Top Model. Seems like she successfully transitioned from the world of modeling to the world of acting. That’s fierce!

Aml Ameen Ethnicity? In an interview with Scene TV Blog, Aml tells us about his ethnic background:
Please tell us a little about yourself and what you do?
My name is Aml Ameen (Aml means ‘hope’ in Arabic). I’m British-born and of Caribbean descent; my dad is from St Vincent and my mum is British born Jamaican. I am an actor and have been working professionally for 20 years from the age of 6.
And he also tells us how he started acting:
My father, Bilal Ameen, sent me to stage school from the age of 6. After watching ‘Home Alone,’ I went up to him and declared my desire to act in the form of jumping up and down, saying “Dad, I wanna be an actor”. From there I went to Barbara Speake Stage School for 10 years where I studied mostly dance. I performed in West End shows like ‘Oliver’ and ‘Jolson’ and had the honour of performing with the late, great Michael Jackson – an amazing experience that I cherish and gloat about. Haha!
Performing with Michael Jackson? We’d be gloating about it too if it was us!
